Applied Formal Verification: For Digital Circuit Design by Douglas Perry, Harry Foster

By Douglas Perry, Harry Foster

Meant for layout engineers, this e-book introduces basic verification options, compares them with formal verification suggestions, and offers directions for growing formal excessive point requirement. The authors talk about formal verification innovations for either utilized Boolean and sequential verification, formal estate checking, the method of making a proper try out plan, and country aid recommendations. The appendices record frequent PSL statements for top point specifications and comparable necessities laid out in method Verilog syntax.

1998]. As a consequence, bugs are missed if we only observe output ports during simulation. 3 ATPG Steps 2. Justify 1. Enumerate Output 3. Propagate Introduction to Formal Techniques 45 One means of increasing observability in a simulation-based methodology is by embedding lower-level or structural implementation assertions directly in the RTL model. In this way, the simulation environment no longer depends on generating a specific input stimulus to propagate the bug’s effect to an observable point.

HDL software simulators typically cannot be interconnected to real hardware environments because the simulation speed is too slow. The simulated model is effectively data that are being executed by the simulator on the host computer, so there are no “device pins” to connect to the external environment. For small designs, designers can think of and generate test cases for the most important scenarios to test. As the design increases in size, this process becomes increasingly difficult. An HDL software simulator will typically run a few tens of clocks per second on a fast engineering workstation.

The background of each technique is described, and then the strengths and weaknesses of each are compared. 1 HDL SOFTWARE SIMULATORS An HDL software simulator is a software application program that runs on a typical engineering workstation or PC. The HDL software simulator reads a hardware description language input file that describes the functional operation of the design. As the simulator executes, it applies stimulus and user commands to the design and generates output data for analysis. This is shown in Fig.
